I'm wishing for fall! I'm demanding the weather cool off and all things pumpkin come out!
This is my favorite time of year. And I started making pumpkin stuff and hiding it in my house over a month ago. Hehehe, love love love it! I made a couple of these stacking pumpkins. One for outside and one for just inside my front door. They were tedious because I was picky. I got all 3 sizes of pumpkins from 3 different stores. Then the pot came from yet another store. But I had in my head what I wanted and wanted it just so. The pot is from Garden Ridge. The pumpkins are from Hobby Lobby, Michaels and Walmart. I hot glued them all together and then wrapped a leaf garland around the base and hot glued a few leaves here and there. I'm super excited about it because I can change out the decor for each season and just use the same pot.
I love this project! It's a bit of work, but oh so worth it. I saw it on Pinterest from Infarrantly Creative. She has great instructions on her blog of how to make this pallet art. I think the only difference from mine and hers, is that she used silver paint and I used a linen color for the wording. It's fairly inexpensive to make for how large it is too. Also, an added bonus, I made 6 of them, and then had a bunch of left over wood around a foot each. So, I made these below instead of just tossing the wood scraps in the garbage.
I love how they turned out! Not bad for a project made from things I was just going to toss out. I nailed the wood together, and then lightly painted the 1x2 wood shims. Then made a couple vinyl stencils, slapped on some paint, ripped the vinyl off, and they were totally done in like 30 minutes. Start to finish. And I love them. :)
